Wakelet: Talking Climate with Katharine Hayhoe & George Marshall

By Léane de Laigue on November 20, 2017

Climate Outreach were delighted to host Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist and Christian based in Texas, in Oxford on 15 November 2017.

Katharine has been named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People for her ability to talk about climate change beyond the green bubble in a way that is effective and compassionate.

She joined us at the University Church of St Mary in Oxford for a climate conversation with Climate Outreach founder George Marshall and the hundreds of people who joined us.

For a glimpse of how inspiring this event was – and a great way to remember it – have a look at this Storify we created.

Léane leads on disseminating our insights and resources in a way that creates the biggest impact possible. She started her career as a Marketing Manager for Johnson & Johnson, before deciding to become a history teacher. She was asked to teach an Environmental Studies class without any previous experience in the subject, and learning and talking about climate change with her students completely changed her worldview. She has since dedicated herself to public engagement with climate change, working for the David Suzuki Foundation and now Climate Outreach.

Léane’s life has been evenly split between Canada, France, the UK and the US, with a bit of time in Hong Kong and Argentina. She is a native speaker of English and French, speaks Spanish and is currently learning Mandarin. She holds a Master’s degree in Environment and Management (Canada) and an MBA in Marketing (US) as well as undergraduate degrees in Education (Canada) and Humanities (France). In her spare time she can be found climbing mountains, kayaking, reading graphic novels and sometimes unicycling.
